  1. Post update

    That is all from us for this evening.

    The Great Britain squad for the World Championships should be announced next week. The championships themselves are from 22-30 August and are all over the BBC.

    See you there.

  2. Looking forward

    Usain Bolt

    And athletics as a whole got a shot in the arm as Usain Bolt showed that he has being doing his homework behind the scenes.

    His previous best in 2015 was 10.12 seconds. On Friday night, in terrible conditions, he ran 9.87 seconds to win both his heat and the final.

    A Justin Gatlin win in Beijing, and all the associated ho-ha, may not happen if the Jamaican has his way.

  3. Looking back...

    If this was a health check for British athletics ahead of the world championships next month, I reckon Team GB have passed with flying colours.

    Mo Farah looked happy, confident and in form with a win on Friday night. Jessica Ennis looked far sharper than she did in Gotzis, impressing especially in the hurdles. Shara Proctor, Zharnel Hughes and Laura Weightman all had notable wins, while Dina Asher Smith became the first British woman to break 11 seconds at just 19 years old.

  4. Men's long jump


    Olympic champion Greg Rutherford after coming third: "It was an incredible atmosphere when I came out to jump and the emotions were running high. Sadly the competition didn't go to plan with three fouls to start with putting myself under pressure.

    "I've got another competition in five days and will try to right the wrongs there and get myself into a better position. I am confident that by the Worlds all will be fine.

  5. Post update

    There has been a bit of an impromptu school sportsday held on the home straight, with a collection of Newham youngsters taking each other on over 100m

    They get a mighty roar and it is a giant mis-match with the fastest streaking away to win while the backmarkers were still around 60m.

  6. Women's 100m

    Asher-Smith comes fourth

    Darren Campbell

    BBC Sport athletics expert on Radio 5 live


    "Dina Asher-Smith carried the kit at London 2012 but she will go to Beijing and the World Championships carrying the hopes of the nation."

  7. Women's 100m

    None of the chest-puffing and posturing that the men's 100m consists of.

    Dina Asher-Smith is full of praise for Dafne Schippers, telling everyone how easy the Dutchwoman has made the switch from multi-events to sprint specialist.

    That's it Dina. Lull her into a false sense of security and then sting her in Beijing.

  8. Women's 100m

    Nigeria's Blessing Okagbare was second with Ivory Coast's Murielle Ahoure third.

  9. Women's 100m

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV


    "Schippers is a heptathlete but a quality sprinter and I think she can challenge the European record. She's improved every year and gets better at the end of the race with her strength."

  10. Women's 100m

    Dafne Schippers wins in 10.93


    Dafne Schippers' class shone through as she storms home in a new national record.

    Dina Asher-Smith fades, perhaps as she tightens up in the midst of the battle in the middle lanes, and finishes fourth in 11.06.

  11. Women's 100m

    Dina Asher-Smith's name is read out to wild cheers and broad grin from the lady herself.

    Pressure? This is a pleasure for her.

    Down to the blocks. The crowd hush...

  12. Women's 100m

    Right, the climax of this afternoon's events is the women's 100m final.

    Dina Asher-Smith's time of 10.99 was matched by European champion Dafne Schippers in one of the other heats and the dangerous Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast is in between them in the middle lanes.

  13. Post update

  14. Asher-Smith sets GB 100m record

    Women's 100m final at 16:54

  15. Men's mile race

    Asbel Kiprop wins in 3:54.87

    Asbel Kiprop checks on the big screen as he leads the field down the home straight, as casually as a passenger looking for a gate number as the snaffle duty free.

    Nope, no signs of anyone able to apply any real pressure and he coasts over with space to spare.

  16. Men's mile race

    Asbel Kiprop, two-time world 1500m champion and Beijing 2008 winner, will be the class of this field.

    But keep an eye out for United States Ben Blankenship who seems to be modelling his look on the Big Lebowski. He stands out a little.

    Here he is setting a new world record at the world distance relay earlier this year.

    Ben Blakencup
  17. GB win men's 4x100m relay

    Darren Campbell

    BBC Sport athletics expert on Radio 5 live

    GB relay team

    "All the momentum was lost because the changeover meant Ujah had to slow down and then re-accelerate. He composed himself as Vicaut got closer and closer. Not the greatest performance but the baton got around - just about."

  18. GB win men's 4x100m relay

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    "If Britain are going to win a medal, they still need to be faster. The USA and Jamaica will be strong and France look like they're hot at the moment."

  19. GB win men's 4x100m relay

    Brendan Foster

    Olympic medallist and BBC athletics commentator

    "There were some good changeovers from GB. They weren't as fast as in the World Team Championships but the competition for a place in the relay team is going to be very strong indeed now."

  20. Men's 4x100m relay

    GB A win in 38.33


    CJ Ujah looks nervous rather than ecstatic as he crossed the line. The reason why was Jimmy Vicaut flying up behind him on the home straight.

    If the race had been a couple of metres longer, the Frenchman would have got the nod.

    As it was Ujah held on and Britain's slick changeovers get their rewards.

  21. Men's 4x100m relay

    Relay team

    Great Britain's A team consists of Richard Kilty, Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, James Ellington and CJ Ujah.

    France will be tough to beat. Jimmy Vicaut will bring them home.

    The United States, anchored by Michael Rodgers, will be strong as ever.

  22. Men's 800m

    Michael Rimmer, speaking to BBC One: "I was worried at 600m and I got boxed in for the last 50m. But it's good to have two of us at the Worlds - it's not much fun on your own. I want to race against another Brit."

    Kyle Langford added: "I've been careful with my races. I'm a Championship runner, not a time-trialler."

  23. Men's long jump result

    Rutherford comes third


    Olympic champion Greg Rutherford finishes in third place after completing his leaps with a best of 8.18m.

    South Africa's Zarck Visser was leading with 8.21 but American Marquis Dendy took the victory with a leap of 8.38 with his last effort.

  24. Men's 800m

    Amos wins

    Nijel Amos, speaking to BBC One after beating David Rudisha: "It's all about winning. Racing against David gives me motivation."

  25. Men's 800m

    Britain's Michael Rimmer budged and barged his way into fifth in a crowd scene and his time of 1:45.67 will book his place on a plane to the World Championships.

    Kyle Langford was not far behind either. He was seventh in 1:45.78. The 19-year-old became the first junior to win the senior British title since Steve Ovett earlier this year and, barring any over-caution, should also be going to Beijing.

  26. Men's 800m

    David Rudisha, speaking to BBC One, after coming second: "It's always special here, it shows how they love 800m. I'm working hard, I have been doing a lot of speed work in the last few weeks and I am improving."

  27. Men's 800m

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    "The problem for Rudisha is that he can go out hard but he can't maintain it anymore, certainly in the home straight. Nijel Amos is tough though... and very good."

  28. Men's 800m

    Amos wins in 1:44.57

    Amos wins

    Nijel Amos lines up his target and shoots it down, allowing David Rudisha to lead him into the home straight and then kicking hard to overhaul him in the final 20m.

  29. Men's 800m

    Here they come. Amos v Rudisha...

  30. Men's 800m

    The first lap clocks in at 59 seconds.

    David Rudisha is in third, striding tall, with Nijel Amos lurking on his shoulder.

  31. Men's 800m

    Lord Coe, speaking to BBC One: "The atmosphere is extraordinary and so many athletes have been lifted by the noise - it's the best I've heard in three years."

  32. Men's 800m


    Lord Coe, speaking to BBC One: "David Rudisha is the greatest 800m runner of his generation. Maybe today is the day he rekindles his form. He's been looking forward to this for weeks."

  33. Men's 800m

    This about two men.

    David Rudisha - the Olympic champion and world record holder and living middle distance legend - and the man who has beaten him in five of their six meetings.

    Botswana's Nijel Amos is the younger man at 21 and beat Rudisha in the Commonwealth Games final in Glasgow last summer.

    Britain's Kyle Langford - a European Under-23 gold winner - is also in the race.

  34. 3,000m steeplechase

    Conseslus Kipruto wins in 8:09


    A stirring run from Kenya's Conseslus Kipruto who streaks clear of countryman Jairus Birech to win the 3000m steeplechase.

  35. Men's long jump


    And Greg Rutherford is back in the room!

    The Olympic champion failed to register a mark at all with three fouls in his first three jumps. Normally that would have been goodnight and goodbye. But with only eight athletes in the field there is no cut to be dodged.

    And Rutherford soars out to 8.12m with his fifth jump in celebration. That is good enough for second, 9cm behind South Africa's Zarck Visser.

    Two more jumps to try and find the extra few inches...

  36. Will Ennis-Hill compete at the World Championships?

    Denise Lewis

    Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV


    "Knowing Jess like I do, I think she'd like to be quicker than 23.49 but I think she's had a solid meeting overall. With regards to Beijing, she was very poker-faced."

  37. Will Ennis-Hill compete at the World Championships?

    Paula Radcliffe

    Marathon world record holder and BBC Sport expert

    "Jess doesn't want to go to the Beijing if she's not going to be in contention, so that's a consideration. She wants a good winter too, ahead of Rio next year. She won't want any niggles being carried over."

  38. Women's 200m


    Jessica Ennis-Hill speaking to BBC One: "I've got to be pleased with the weekend. The hurdles did surprise me how well I did, the 200m is hard - those girls are so quick. But it's improving and my time has come down.

    "I feel I'm finding my form and everything's coming together. I've put some good training together and I'm making progress.

    "I need to have a chat with my coach about what I can achieve at the Worlds."

  39. Women's 200m

    It was a queue of Americans behind winner Elaine Thompson with Tori Bowie second and Candyce Townsend in third.

  40. Women's 200m

    Ennis-Hill comes eighth

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    "It wasn't great for Jess. She came out of the blocks well but she maybe felt a bit tired after doing the long jump. I reckon she could be about a second behind the winner."

  41. Women's 200m

    Elaine Thompson (JAM) wins in 22.10

    Jamaica's Elaine Thompson pulled apart that field like it was a public dissection. A great run as she pours on the pace all the way to the line.

    Jessica Ennis-Hill is home in 23.49 seconds in eighth. Solid, but not spectacular.

  42. Women's 200m

    American Candyce McGrone will be the woman to chase with a season's best of 22.08, while Sandra Richards-Ross is the runner the big name and big medal record.

  43. Women's 200m

    Two out of three ain't bad as Meatloaf sang.

    But Jessica Ennis-Hill will want to register impressive results in all three of her events this weekend.

    After the long-jump and hurdles, she is up in the 200m next and will be aiming for something in the low 23s.

  44. President for the day - what would you do?

    BBC World Service has asked some of the world's biggest names - Valerie Adams, Aries Merritt, Allyson Felix, David Rudisha, David Oliver, Sanya Richards-Ross and Kim Collins - what their priorities would be.

    Doping featured high on the agenda with sprinter Kim Collins saying he'd "make sure cheats were exposed".

    While hurdler David Oliver would like to "make the Diamond league more like the Champions League" with a regular schedule, oh and "maybe allow some gambling on it?"

  45. Women's 800m

    Brendan Foster

    Olympic medallist and BBC athletics commentator

    "Hassan runs differently from everyone else. She starts slow then darts through the field. Eunice Sum let her go and once she moved back into the lead she stretched the gap and won convincingly. It was a good performance from Lynsey Sharp too."

  46. Women's 800m

    Eunice Sum wins in 1:58.45


    Kenya's Eunice Sum, dyed blue hair streaking out behind her, strides away from the rest to win convincingly after a little 600m rebellion from Sifan Hassan of the Netherlands.

    Lynsey Sharp was third in a season's best time of 1:59.57.

  47. Women's 800m

    Eunice Sum hits the front as the bell tolls. 58.2 seconds for the first 400m. Lynsey Sharp is down in fifth.

  48. Women's 800m


    Commonwealth Games and European silver medallist Lynsey Sharp is the pick of the British crop in the women's 800m.

    She will have her work cut out though against Eunice Sum who has been sweeping all before her this season.

  49. Women's 200m - 10-minute warning

  51. 400m hurdles

    Dai Greene, speaking to BBC Sport: "It's nice to have a season's best. It's been touch and go if I would run today because of illness. It was in the back of my mind the whole race. It's frustrating - it's great to be back but I know I can be better."

  52. Post update

    Colin Jackson

    Two-time world 110m hurdles champion on BBC TV


    "It was a good, competitive race. The race is known as the man-killer but Michael Tinsley came out on top this time. If we did this race again in three hours, we'd have a different winners. That's what makes it so exciting. Nobody knows who will win in Beijing."

  53. 400m hurdles

    Michael Tinsley wins in 49.02

    American Michael Tinsley recovered well after battering the final hurdle, finding a spurt of pace to keep LJ Van Zyl from the door.

    Van Zyl finishes second. Niall Flannery was third in 49.53 seconds -short of the British standard but his place on the plane should be secure though.

    Dai Greene was down in fifth in a time of 49.85.

  54. 400m hurdles

    Off the bend it is Michael Tinsley in the lead with LJ van Zyl pushing on...

  55. 400m hurdles

    Next up is the men's 400m hurdles.

    Former world champion Dai Greene and current British champion Niall Flannery are in the outside lanes.

    LJ van Zyl of South Africa and Olympic silver medallist Michael Tinsley occupy the prime central slots.

  56. Post update

    Denise Lewis

    Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV

    "If there's one thing which Greg Rutherford does well, it's marking out his run-up and getting it right."

  57. Post update

    Greg Rutherford is laid out like a gap-year traveller on a Thai beach, lying on his towel with his backpack as a pillow as he waits for his turn in the men's long jump.

    Meanwhile Dina Asher-Smith is getting a massage behind the scenes, peeking out through the table to tap away on her mobile phone. Her final is at 16:54 BST and should be a corker.

  58. Women's 5,000m

    Molly Huddle, who finished second in the women's 5,000m: "The crowd was so loud, I didn't know if it was for me. The pace was hard and my foot was sore. I'm focusing more on the 10,000m so that felt more like a sprint for me."

  59. Women's 5,000m

    Steve Cram

    BBC athletics commentator

    "There was almost a sigh at the end there - not because of Cherono but because the crowd wanted Huddle to hang on."

  60. Women's 5,000m

    Mercy Cherono wins in 14:54

    A grandstand finish as Commonwealth champion Mercy Cherono stalks down American Molly Huddle in the last lap, Huddle responds, Cherono goes again and Huddle finally folds in a titanic battle of wills.

    None of the Britons could dip below the 15:20 mark that might make the British selectors choke on their cornflakes as they discuss World Championship picks on Monday morning.

  61. Men's long jump coming up

    Head to head

    "It is the first time back since 2012. I'll be honest, I'm quite an emotional individual anyway, so there's a chance I might shed a tear when I'm back in the Olympic Stadium," said Greg Rutherford.

    "For me, it changed my life and the fact I get to compete there again, I can't wait to step out on that track again."

    He is seven minutes away from the start of the men's long jump. He has targetted regaining sole possession of the stadium record that he shares with Aleksandr Menkov at 8.31m.

  62. Women's 5,000m

    Next up on the track is the women's 5,000m.

    Steph Twell is already on the plane to Beijing and so has he feet up at home after racing last night.

    It will be a battle between the likes of Laura Whittle and Kate Avery to see if anyone can register the British standard time of 15 minutes 20 seconds to give the selectors something to chew on.

  65. Men's 400m


    British champion Rabah Yousif was sixth in 45.43. He is already assured of his place in the world championship squad.

    European champion Martyn Rooney is not. His time of 45.73 might not be enough to convince the selectors to pick him ahead of rival Matt Hudson-Smith.

  66. Men's 400m

    Wayde van Niekerk wins in 44.63


    Isaac Makwala tied up badly over the home straight after going out far too hard.

    David Verburg of the United States comes home second behind a storming Wayde van Niekerk

  67. Men's 400m

    Isaac Makwala leads off the bend, Martyn Rooney is well down.

  68. Men's 400m

    Next up is the men's 400m.

    British champion Rabah Yousif is joined by evergreen Martyn Rooney who finished third in that race.

    Botswana's Isaac Makwala and South Africa's Wyde van Niekirk wil be the men to beat.

  69. Proctor wins the women's long jump

    Shara Proctor was well in front of the rest in the women's long jump.

    She took the win with her leap of 6.98m. Fellow Briton Jazmin Sawyers was second with 6.66m with Slovakia's Jana Veldakova in third on 6.51m.

    Katarina Johnson-Thompson was fourth with 6.50, Jessica Ennis-Hill seventh with 6.37m.

  70. Proctor breaks GB long jump record


    Shara Proctor tells BBC One after leaping 6.98m: "The claps echo around the stadium, and it gave me the extra boost. I was shaking at the start. I did not expect that jump. This stadium is the greatest place to jump. It gave me chills.

    "There is more to come. I am in hard training and that's why I didn't expect a jump like that."

  71. Post update

    Denise Lewis

    Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV

    "Athletes love competing here, the energy is fantastic, and everyone is raising their game.

    "Shara Procter is looking for that 7m jump and there's more to come from her."

    Lynn 'the leap' Davies is chatting to folk in the VIP area. It's nearly 51 years since he won his Olympic gold. Doesn't time fly? Sitting in the posh seats is Jade Jones, singer from the boy band Damage, or better known as the other half of Baby Spice, Emma Bunton.

    And a few rows behind him is Cherie Blair with, I think, her son Leo, though Leo has been out of the public eye since the Downing Street years so who knows.

  73. Women's 100m heats

    Dafne Schippers wins in 10.99


    Dafne Schippers recovered from a so-so start to duel it out with Blessing Okabare over the final 30m. The Dutchwoman takes it by one-hundredth of a second with American Tianna Bartoletta in third.

    The British trio of Daryll Neita, Jodie Williams and Bianca Williams filled spots six to eight and won't feature in the final.

  74. Women's 100m heats

    Caught your breath? Good. Here comes the second women's 100m heat.

    Great Britain's Jodie Williams goes in lane two, but the quality is outside her with Nigeria's Blessing Okabare - world bronze medallist - and Dafne Schippers - the Dutch heptathlete turned sprint specialist.

  75. Proctor sets new GB long-jump record


    And there goes another British record!

    Shara Proctor launches herself out to 6.98m, a 3cm improvement on her own national long-jump record.

    A dazzling start to the day.

  76. Asher-Smith sets GB 100m record

    It is the last time that this track will be used. It is being relaid after this meeting and the sprinters will be sorry to see it go. It produced a host of fast times at the Olympics and it seems to have lost none of its spring

  77. Asher-Smith sets GB 100m record

    Dina Asher-Smith

    Dina Asher-Smith tells BBC Sport after running 10.99 seconds: "I am over the moon but the race was a bit messy so I'll have to go and get ready for the next round."

  78. Asher-Smith sets GB 100m record

    Denise Lewis

    Olympic heptathlon gold medallist on BBC TV

    "To go under 11 seconds is such a benchmark of world sprinting. She took that race by the scruff of her neck and dealt with the competition. What a fantastic piece of running."

  79. Women's 100m

    Dina Asher-Smith wins in 100m in 10.99


    A new national record! The 11-second barrier breached for the first time by a British woman! And it is still only the heats!

    It was an electric run.

    "It means a lot. I am still a bit confused by it all, but I am trying to keep things down for the final. I still have stuff to improve, the race was a little messy," a calm Asher-Smith tells BBC Sport before heading behind the scenes to prepare for the final.

  80. Women's 100m

    First up on the track this afternoon are the heats of the women's 100m.

    British record holder Dina Asher-Smith and compatriot Desiree Henry are in the first race.

    The first three through automatically with the three fastest losers across all three heats joining them.

  81. Men's pole vault

    Renaud Lavillenie

    Last night the pole vault boys took one look at the rain pelting down out and decided not to take to the dirty London skies.

    They have been back out this morning and Frenchman Renaud Lavillenie - who won London 2012 gold - went higher than anyone else ever has at the Olympic Stadium, winning with a monster 6.03, just 2cm short of his world-leading height for 2015.

  82. Women's long jump

    Shara Proctor

    The long jump continues apace out in front of the back straight.

    After four rounds, leading the way is Britain's Shara Proctor after her opening leap of 6.67m.

    But the most consistent athlete in the field so far is Britain's European under-23 champion Jazmin Sawyers - with 6.66m the pick of four jumps over 6.20m.

    Katarina Johnson-Thompson is fourth with a best of 6.50m. Jessica Ennis-Hill has not improved on her opening 6.37m.

  86. Key times


    It isn't just the multi-eventers to get excited about either.

    Key times:

    Women's long jump (13:45 BST) - Jessica Ennis-Hill, Katarina Johnson-Thompson.

    Men's long jump (15:35 BST) - Greg Rutherford, Christian Taylor

    Women's 200m (15:58 BST) - Ennis-Hill, Sanya Richards-Ross.

    Women's 100m (16:54 BST) - Dina Asher-Smith, Blessing Okagbare, Dafne Schippers.

  87. Women's long jump

    No-one is holding back out there.

    Jessica Ennis-Hill's first attempt is her biggest jump since London 2012, flying out to 6.37m.

    Only for Katarina Johnson-Thompson to soar out to 6.50m.

    And then for compatriot and British record holder Shara Proctor to register a 6.67m.


  88. The new guard

    Katarina Johnson-Thompson

    But Reggie is not the only youngster keeping Ennis-Hill on her toes.

    Twenty-two year-old Katarina Johnson-Thompson - sometime described as the new Jessica Ennis-Hill - joins her in the sandpit this afternoon.

    As does teenager Morgan Lake, who broke the UK Youth heptathlon record previously held by Johnson-Thompson.

    It's a dynasty that Dallas would be proud of and there is news already from the Olympic Stadium....

  89. Ennis not over the Hill

    Jessica Ennis-Hill

    Yep, being a world and Olympic heptathlon champion takes some beating as multitasking goes.

    Jessica Ennis-Hill and coach Toni Minichiello were back at the scene of their London 2012 triumph last night as she ran a superb 12.79 in the 100m hurdles.

    Today, she is dusting off her long-jump and 200m skills to see if they are up to scratch. If they are, she will be packing her bags and heading to Beijing next month for the World Championships.

    Oh, and happy birthday for last week Reggie.
